Platforms and Wedges - The Summer Shoe

Platforms, flatforms and wedges seem to be everywhere at the moment and I thought it would be an excellent idea to devote a whole post to the height enhancers!

Now, Samantha is a lucky lady because she can wear skyscraper heels, you should see her Louboutin collection, and still be able to take elegant steps whereas I do a rather ungraceful walk (think Whoopi Goldberg in Ghost); therefore I have to consider this fact when choosing a new pair of heels.

Like many girls I like to feel tall and love to lengthen my legs with some ankle breakers, but I prefer the platform or wedge type shoe because I have more stability in them. So, today I have put together some of the best platforms, flatforms and wedges there are currently on the high street. However, I have omitted some because quite frankly they were ridiculously high and you would suffer altitude sickness when wearing them!

I hope you find a pair you like. I quite like the Off-White Wedges from Zara for £29.99, and I am very impressed with the Mary Portas for Clarks designs!
